This is our calling: To ensure there’s enough clean water in the Chattahoochee River now and for future generations. Here’s how we do it:
We teach students, homeowners, businesses and policy-makers the importance of clean, plentiful water.
We conduct research, patrol the river, collect and monitor data, review permits, and hold polluters accountable.
We advocate for water protection legislation and promote sustainable water plans and policies.
BacteriAlert is a one of a kind, real-time bacteria monitoring program operated as a partnership between CRK, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and the National Parks Service (NPS).
The Chattahoochee River has experienced remarkable change since the turn of the century.

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper is pleased to shine the spotlight on the J.M. Huber Corporation, our newest major corporate sponsor of the Lake Lanier Aquatic Learning Center, also known as the Lake Lanier Floating Classroom.
Through the company’s Huber Helps initiative, Huber is making it possible for Chattahoochee Riverkeeper to replace the motors on our Chota Princess II, our 40 ft. catamaran and home to the floating classroom. Since 2000, more than 80,000 students and teachers have experienced the unique on-the-water environmental education experience that this vessel provides.
Thanks to Huber, the Lake Lanier Floating Classroom will be able to sail for another 20 years!
